Blogger Recognition Award


Yee I got another award from my dear friend Paardje the owner Of Snail Mail, Books and Vanities blog again. She has wonderful personality and very kind to me. πŸ™‚ This is the second award from her, this time is Blogger Recognition Award. Thank you dear for nominating me I really appreciate it. I always try to follow all award as appreciation of who nominating me and I feel that I am part of a Blogger community. πŸ™‚

Here are the rules of award:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Write a post to show your award.
  3.  Attach the award to the post.
  4. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  5. Give a piece of advice or two to new bloggers.
  6. Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.
  7.  Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them & provide a link to the award post you created.

How the Blog is started

I should write at work for such as academic journals or books. But sometimes the words don’t come from my mind, I get stuck and I don’t know what I should write. One day I got an idea, I wrote easy and fun things before I write the serious thing. πŸ™‚ So I always write anything in my journal about what I think and what I feel and that was fun..

Then I found WordPress is place for sharing thought on internet. Aha this is it. So the blogging was started. I got advantages from blogging not only as starting before serious writing, but also helps me from drowning to black hole. Recently I have more peaceful and sharper mind.

Advice for new Blogger

This is just the third month of my blogger world, still only have 100 followers, 4,000 hits, so I am still newbie actually. But maybe I can give some advice for someone who is newer than me hehe.

  1. Be yourself. Maybe this is a classic advice, but believe me please find own writing style and our readers will find the uniqueness of ours. Hope our readers will love our blog then.
  2. Write something useful for readers. Even sometimes I can not resist to write of some part of personal things but I always try to give useful things for my readers. I don’t want my blog is only garbage on internet. πŸ™‚ Nothing happier than sharing something might can help or educate people.
  3. Be original. Don’t ever to do plagiarism for our blog. Getting inspiration from other articles is normal but please write in our own words and language.Once we copy other articles please make citation to appeciate it.
  4. Have fun. I love reading comments and of course I appreciate all like clicks but I don’t seek until die for it. I try to be fun as possible, this is my blog I can write whatever I want I only hope it’s useful for others.
  5. Be part of community. This is the fun thing of being a blogger. We have new “friends” form around the world. Maybe we don’t meet in real world but I feel I have real friends that we can share our thought.
  6. Be consistent. Maybe this is the hard part, sometimes we don’t know what we should write. But at least you can show the readers that we still live haha.

My nominee

AAAh this is hard I have many wonderful blogger friends. I think I agree with Paardje’s way of not putting nominee names here rather than I will invite my nominee personally. Thanks Paardje you just solved my problem haha.

Thanks for reading, liking, commenting and following my blog. Please check out Paardje’s blog. πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful day…

Liebster Award

Hey my blog just got Liebster Award form my craft blogger friend bored little piggy. Thank dear for nominating me. Check out her blog, she knitted a lovely dress for herself. I don’t know if I am able to finish my knitted dress, but she could. πŸ™‚

Anyway, I should answer at least 5 from 11 questions she asked, here are my answers.


Who is your favorite family member, and why do you pick this person?

I love all my family members of course. It’s difficult to choose who is my favorite one. May I choose more than one person? :-D. I love my son more than anything, he is the reason I live. I will do everything to make him happy and help him growing to be a man, a good man. πŸ™‚

My mother is my hero, my inspiration. She is smart and wonderful person. She taught me many things. She loves her children more than anything, and of course we love her as well. May my parents specially my mother are always healthy and happy.

Is there any place in the world you would like to visit but you cannot?

I want to go around Indonesia, climb Indonesian mountains. But I don’t know if I am able to do that this time, you know I am getting older maybe climbing mountain is little bit dangerous for me. πŸ™‚ I also want visit USA, Europe, and many countries, but the problem are same, it’s involving time and money. But yea I am still trying.

How many languages do you speak (language of love and sarcasm don’t count)? Do you want to learn more?

My mother language is local language called Sundanese. Indonesia has hundreds local languages but luckily we have National language called Bahasa (Indonesia). So I speak Bahasa too for formal language and talk with people who don’t understand Sundanese. I also speak English as foreign language. I have tried to learn Japanese and French, but always in poor level :-D. I still want to learn Japanese, French, German and Arabic.

What is your proudest moment?

My proudest moment is when my son gets an achievement. Even maybe small thing is always make me proud as a mom. My son doesn’t like to tell me what achievement he got, he said mom will tell every body and it’s embarrassing haha. Ooh my boy, please understand your proud mommy.

Is there one thing in the past you want to change or do differently?

I am thankful of everything in my life good and bad, all gave me lessons to be a better person. Generally I never felt regret about my past. I have only one thing I feel regret in my life. I wish I was as brave as this time and took many important decisions since long time ago. I was too scare of many things, scare of what people say and scare of what my future look like. But everything always comes and goes in right time. πŸ™‚

What is your last achievement?

I got MIF (Matsumae International Foundation) fellowship to visit and live in Japan for 6 months. It was very memorable time when I lived there. I had many friends from around the world and also could travel around Japan for free ( yes free). What achievement could be better than that?

Next, The most difficult thing I should do that is choosing 5 blogger friends to be nominated Liebster Award. I have many wonderful blogger friends and some blogger have gotten Liebster Award. So here I choose 5 blogger friends:

  2. And then you can answer the question that person asked you:) That person might ask you to answer all, or as little as 5 β€” it depends really.
  3. Once you have finished answering, you nominate other bloggers too. I think there’s a minimum of 5, but you should be allowed to do more. The more the merrier, right?
  4. Now, you let these cool bloggers know that you have nominated them for the award, you might want to send them the link to your post to make it easier for them.
  5. Finally, you can give them questions of your own, preferably 11 questions.

My questions for them are:

  1. Why are you become a blogger?
  2. Do you think you still become a blogger in 5 years later?
  3. What is your favorite place you ever visited?
  4. What is your memorable moment when you were childhood?
